Award Nomination

Only current members of AAEA/NAEA are allowed to nominate for the awards.

To nominate:

  • Write a letter of nomination that explains why and how the individual teacher, student, administrator, or other supporter deserves to be recognized with an AAEA award. Save this letter as a PDF file and submit with the Nomination Form.
  • Complete the online form before June 30th. Nominations received after June 30th cannot be considered.

All nominees will be notified and are required to complete the online Nominee Form, which includes an AAEA Standardized Vita form, and email the following to the Awards Chair on or before July 31st:

  • Two letters of recommendation (in addition to the letter submitted by the nominator).
  • A high resolution (300 dpi) publication-quality photo.

Completed nomination packets will be sent to the Awards Committee to assess nominations based on the corresponding rubric for that particular award. View the NAEA Awards Program Rubrics.

The timeline allows the selection committee sufficient time to review documentation, verify membership, make final decisions and submit the names of winning recipients to the AAEA President.

Award Presentation

Winners of awards will be notified prior to the annual AAEA Conference. Upon notification, each award recipient is asked to attend the awards banquet at our annual conference to be honored and receive his or her award.
